The more things change…nah, things don’t change

Most of Nehemiah chapter nine is a prayer of confession that’s worth reading and thinking about.

Things really haven’t changed all that much — God is still “ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love,” not forsaking his people.  And people?  “[T]hey ate and were filled and became fat and delighted themselves in [God’s] great goodness.  Nevertheless, they were disobedient and rebelled against [God] and cast [his] law behind their back and killed [his] prophets, who had warned them in order to turn them back to [him], and they committed great blasphemies.”

Nah, things don’t change.
